key ingredient melatonin puts people to sleep

A trend hitting some East Texas tobacco shops are relaxation brownies, but they have extremely high doses of melatonin, the hormone that puts you to sleep. 

 

Made of natural ingredients, like rose hips and velarian root, "lazy cakes" are perfectly legal.

Key ingredient melatonin isn't even regulated or evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.

And they're literally selling like hot cakes at The Dragon's Breath in Tyler.

Each "lazy cake" has two servings of 3.9 mg of melatonin, that's a total of almost
8 mg if you ate the entire brownie.

According to WebMD, adults should start with .2 mg because of melatonin's potency.

 

The two shops featured in this report are:

 

The Dragon's Breath

1318 S. Vine Ave Tyler

 

PureBody Nutrition

6747 S. Broadway Tyler     www.purebodynutrition.com
